Masters of Taste

The most awarded Italian distillery

Today, more than 75 years after it was founded, the Roner family stands for Italy's most awarded distillery. Our products stand out in the most internationally renowned tasting competitions. But perhaps more important than these awards are the satisfaction and loyalty of our guests.


Evaluated by master distillers and experts

All distillates are first evaluated by appearance, that is, color and clarity. Then comes the sensory: the fragrance, purity and typicality. Finally, the taste: the harmony of flavors, the sensations on the palate, the aftertaste.

A big compliment and thank you to master distiller Helmut Oberhofer and his team, which with great sensitivity and passion brings out the frangrance and taste of the fruit and grape marc in an incredibly intense way in every bottle.
